Our call to the next cabinet: Invest in Food Transition!

4th of July - Dutch Parliament - The Hague

A broad coalition of 45 parties urges the new Dutch cabinet in this manifesto to transition towards a sustainable food system, through which the Netherlands will contribute to green growth, healthy food for all, and a more peaceful world with less conflict and more stability. We ask the next government to invest in this, together with the private sector, consumers, civil society, farmers, education and science.

On July 4th a delegation of signatories presented the manifesto to the House of Representatives of the Committee on Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation. You can watch the livestream (in Dutch) HERE.

Masterclass FoodTransition

The work does not stop here! This manifesto was an initiative of the Food Security Policy Group of the AgriProFocus network. In September we will organise a Masterclass FoodTransition for Members of Parliament. If you are interested to join, please contact Sander Mager (Chair of the Policy Group).
